Since my doll Molly was my first American Girl Doll she has been loved on a lot! I was 9 or 10 when I got her, so I took her everywhere with me! To the library, wal-mart, even to Florida! I was playing with Molly a few days ago, and noticed that her hair was getting awfully hard to brush! Molly's hair is frizzier than my other dolls because when I was younger I didn't have a doll hairbrush, so I used my own. (NOT a good idea) I have really been wanting to make Molly's hair look better, so a few days ago I washed her hair. :)
I took off Molly's clothes, and put on a hair cape instead, so that she wouldn't get wet.
Here is what Molly's hair looked like before I started washing it. I braid her hair a lot (her favorite style) so it has gotten a natural wave. I wanted to see if her hair would get straighter if I washed it too. :)
Here she is getting her hair washed. I used a mild shampoo and conditioner. I was sure to cover her eyes with a dry wash cloth! :)
After I washed her hair I brushed it out. Her hair has always been uneven, so I trimmed her hair just at the ends. (I got my mom's permisson too)
Here is after I trimmed her hair. It looks SO much nicer!
I put Molly on a chair, in her room to let her hair dry. It had to dry for one day.
This is what her hair looked like the next day!!! I am so amazed at how nice it looks now! It is so much easier to brush!
Now, Molly will have a new 'do when she goes back to school! :)
